Disney Infinity 2.0 + My Big Hero 6 Must Have Holiday List #BigHero6Event 

Black Friday is just a few days away and well I have the inside scoop on a few MUST have items to add to your Little Diva’s or Little Dude’s holiday list.  By now I am sure you have been to see the movie and are being overwhelmed with fist bumps and “Ba La La La La’s” – well so am I but I totally love it.  That’s why this DivaClaus will be putting quite a few Big Hero 6 items up under the tree this year.  Since Paw Paw decided to spoil them with an XBox One this year, the Diva will be placing the Disney Infinity 2.0 Starter Pack (Thanks to Disney Infinity) along with the Big Hero 6  Bay Max Figure & the Hiro Figure under the tree for the little ones.  


So while in L.A.  I got an inside look at the lastest version of Disney Infinity  and learned that I am really behind the times, boy I need to get with the program. Being an ex-gamer I kind of feel ashamed….I mean at thirty…uhm..yeah not saying that last number I still remember cheat codes for Contra, but since I currently don’t have a gaming system in my house I hadn’t realized how high tech and cool gaming has become. Well I was shown a thing or two during our demo of Disney Infinity 2.0.  First of all, the possibilities are endless, there are like so many options that you can do with this game.  It’s expandable so even once you finish the game, you never truly finish the game because you can use different characters, power discs, and toy boxes to basically create a whole new game.  Plus you can go online with a friend and enter the toy boxes they create.  Disney has yet again created another magical experience with  Disney Infinity 2.0.  Check out this Disney 2.0 Video:

Windex® Touch-Up Cleaner Review + Giveaway (5 Lucky Winners)


 Windex® Touch-Up Cleaner Review + Giveaway (5 Lucky Winners)

When it comes to day to day cleaning I have my routine down pact.  I rely on 2 products and my trusty dusty paper towels.  What are those two products you may be wondering?  Well its my Windex® Touch-Up Cleaners made specifically for my bathroom and kitchen.  The moment I saw high value coupons for the Windex® Touch-Up Cleaners I knew I had to try them and I have been using them ever since.  In fact ANY deal that comes around where I can stock up on them, I do just that.  Why you may ask?  Well simply because they work and they are easy to use.  I simply dab my paper towel, wipe my surface, and toss the towel.  As easy as 1,2.3!!!  Plus, the Windex® Touch-Up Cleaners are from a name that I trust.  I’ve been using Windex for YEARS to clean my glass and mirrors and with the Windex® Touch-Up Cleaners I can still clean those things, but now I am able to clean multiple surfaces using the same product.  Which eliminates me from spending extra money for specialty products and saves me time while cleaning.  Did I mention that it smells great too?

Make Christmas a little more “Personal” with Personal Creations #Spon

“Out with the old and in with the new!  This year was a year that was full of new adventures, firsts, and just me taking on new opportunities that were beyond my wildest imagination.  So of course I have to end the year with a bang….For me that Bang is my favorite holiday of the year, Christmas.  Last year I tried something new, I bought my first Live Christmas tree only to find out that I was extremely allergic to the pine needles.  So after 3 medications, plenty of Benadryl, a vacuum full of pine needles and socks full of them too, I learned that I will never be able to do a live tree again.  When we threw the tree out last year we threw out EVERYTHING, with the exception of 5 ornaments that we couldn’t part with.   So I have been looking forward to decorating the tree with the little ones and re-designing our tree as well.

The five ornaments that we kept, we kept because they are special ornaments that we will continue to place on our tree every year.  Those are the ornaments that the kids made at school or their “Baby’s First Christmas” Ornaments – those of course we couldn’t get rid of as they are sentimental.  With that in mind we added a few other sentimental ornaments to our collection this year, with the thought that we will continue to add special ornaments every year until the tree is full of nothing but special ornaments.  I wanted to start some traditions and memories that we could look back on and talk about.  I wanted to be able to pull an ornament off of the tree or out of the box and say we got this in “2013” and this was happening at that time.  Memories, Traditions, and Fun Times – that’s what I want my kids to remember every year during this season.
